Samsung to unveil Galaxy S IV on March 14th?

samsung-logo

SamMobile reports that Samsung is scheduled to unveil the Galaxy S IV on March 14th at a press event in New York City. The information comes from Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, who has a decent track record with unannounced smartphones.

Previous rumors suggested that Samsung might announce the Galaxy S IV on March 15th or March 22nd, so most of the industry insiders are expecting some kind of event in March. Last year Samsung announced the Galaxy S III on May 3rd in London, so it would be surprising to see them announce their next flagship device a couple months earlier this year.

According to SamMobile, the Galaxy S IV is rumored to include the “Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU, Mali-T678 (8-Core) GPU, 4.99″ SuperAMOLED Full HD Resolution Display, 2GB of RAM, 13 Megapixel Rear facing Camera capable of shooting 1080p Full HD Videos at 30FPS, 2 Megapixel front facing camera capable of shooting 720p HD Videos and run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.”

If this Samsung reveal date is accurate, it could be a major blow to HTC who has their own press event scheduled for tomorrow. HTC is widely expected to announce their next flagship phone (codename M7) and rumors suggest it could go on sale by March 22nd.

That means HTC could have their flagship device in retails stores before Samsung, but Samsung could persuade smartphone buyers to delay their purchases by revealing details of the Galaxy S IV before the HTC device goes on sale. Expect more details in the coming weeks.

Update: Chris Ziegler of The Verge reports that the Galaxy S IV will “definitely” be announced on March 14th.

    Can’t wait to see what Samsung and HTC have to offer, but i wont be moving from my note2 anytime soon.

    I’m waiting to see the note3′s offering in the fall.

    • epps720

      This is a great time of year! Sammy, HTC, LG, and Moto (hopefully soon) all unleashing their flagship phones just as my contract is coming up. I’m drooling over the options!

    • Richard Yarrell

      I wish HTC and Samsung well on the Galaxy S4 and Htc One devices. I am waiting for the Galaxy Note 3 plain and simple. When the Galaxy S4 launches nothing on the market will be better from a spec standpoint in 2013 until the Galaxy Note 3.

        Omg Richard, there are so many things wrong with what you just said. Let me list them and see if I can make myself look like a total jackass again…

          Classic comment from squiddy20 androidandme top troll. Can’t believe these guys still allow you to post comments. Pocketnow, Phandroid, androidcentral, and tmonews have banned you from their pages. I know this will always be your main home for trolling. Enjoy

            Too bad you’re too stupid to notice that: 1) This is an impostor since I spell my username with a lowercase “s”, and this one is uppercase, and 2) When have I ever insulted *myself*? You’d have to be pretty “dum” (your spelling) to do something like that.

    • Jon Garrett

      I have the Note and my wife has the S3. I didn’t see any reason to update my note to the note 2 but I still envy my wife’s S3. I’m hoping the S4 will be a crossover between the note 2 and S3.

      The HTC One looks great and I absolutely plan to get it, its just too awesome to pass by.

    • Richard Yarrell

      Squddy20 can’t afford anything new if you gave it to him. He has this silly past it’s prime crappy 3g Galaxy Nexus on Sprint on his mother’s family plan but he is on tmobile’s tmonews page posting comments cause Sprint his own carrier kicked him out of the Sprint forums. You won’t see squiddy20 on Twitter, instagram, Facebook or Google Plus cause if anyone ever found out who he really is they not only would laugh but probably want to kick his ass he’s such a coward. He won’t be purchasing any Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, Htc One, Galaxy S4, MotorolaX phone, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Galaxy Note 3, he has no job. Oh yeah he has this stupid 5year old laptop and thinks the world revolves around that sitting in his mother’s basement. Typical loser.

      • squiddy20

        1. If someone gave me a new phone/tablet/whatever, I wouldn’t need to “afford” it since it’s being given to me for free. You must not have iota of brain power to come up with something so hilariously wrong and backwards. Try harder next time. If you can.
        2. “He has this silly past it’s prime crappy 3g Galaxy Nexus on Sprint” It’s called being in a 2 year contract and actually LIKING my phone, idiot. I don’t feel the need to have “the latest and greatest” because, unlike you, I have no self esteem issues. Only idiots who have low self esteem problems brag about going through 2 (carrier subsidized) phones a year as if he’s “made of money” or “rolling with the big dogs”.
        3. “Oh yeah he has this stupid 5year old laptop” You’ve been saying this exact same thing for the past 2 years, despite my saying that I have a mid-2009 Macbook Pro. Proof that you have no concept of time, or ability to do simple math.

  • JC005

    I am looking to pick up a note 2, but might have to wait for this now. Or maybe I’ll pick up both of them. :-)

  • Vance

    Terrible timing for HTC. No doubt Sammy’s marketing campaign will dwarf HTCs so they’ll have a tough time convincing consumers to buy the One if the S IV is already announced. My advice would be for HTC to work up a pre-order deal and include a D30 case or some other value add to encourage as many sales as possible during the tight window between the launch of the One and the launch of the S IV.

    • c1liu

      Samsung has very strategic and deliberate timing, and it serves them well.

    • Xallies

      HTC Build quality is better. Samsung just has the screen and processor.

      • LukeT32

        and 95% of general Android users will go with the screen/processor.

        • petey pablo

          Except that it will use the same qualcomm 600 soc. And the htc screen is better. Add that the s4 won’t have stereo speakers, or an ir. and welp. HTC wins this year.

      • Richard Yarrell

        Samsung has the screen, processor, storage options, battery solutions, and the software and features solutions. Bottom line here everyone knows who owns android and it isn’t Htc, Lg, Motorola, Nexus devices, or Sony. Samsung is android plain and simple.

        • squiddy20

          “Bottom line here everyone knows who owns android and it isn’t Htc, Lg, Motorola, Nexus devices, or Sony.” Well you’re right about that. Because Google owns Android you idiot. Without Google providing Android to Samsung (as well as the other manufacturers you just listed), there’d be no “pimp slapping” Note 2, no upcoming Galaxy S4, and certainly no rumors of the Note 3. Take your stupid fanboy notions some place they’re wanted.

          • Voliam

            I would suggest you follow him with your incessant Richard bashing, but I noticed you’ve already done so (Android Central). Why you can’t just down vote him and move on is beyond me.

            This guy is one of the biggest Internet trolls everand androidandme support his trolling ffor entertainment purposes. Squiddy20 can go fuck himself. As far as Google owning android that will never change which i love the most but don’t get it twisted asshole if it wasn’t for Samsung android and it’s operating system wouldn’t be where it is today. Last time i check penis face Samsung has the top market share and the funny part is you can add up htc, lg, motorola, and all crappy Nexus line devices and they still won’t match up to Samsung. Can’t help but laugh your the biggest joke in the android community and i am sure one of the biggest cowards as well. Hiding behind fake names cause in the real world your ass would be kicked. Your probably some old washed up middle 50′s person with a major bald spot and 350 pound living at home with your mother.

Weeks go by before i come to this site and he never posts anything until I do. In the real world it means nothing he’s the one unable to post comments at Pocketnow, ask Mr. Michael Fisher how he feels about squiddy20. Can’t post comments at androidcentral talk to Jerry Hildenbrand about squiddy20, unable to post at Phandroid as well as tmonews one day androidandme will get wise. Squiddy20 can go play with himself that’s what he always does anyway.

            2. “As far as Google owning android that will never change” This coming from the guy who states “Samsung is Android”. Whatever you say, hypocrite.
            3. “if it wasn’t for Samsung android and it’s operating system wouldn’t be where it is today” Partly true. If it weren’t for *all the companies using Android*, AND people like Matias Duarte or Andy Rubin, the OS certainly wouldn’t be where it is today. Get outta here you stupid fanboy.
            4. “Hiding behind fake names cause in the real world your ass would be kicked.” Oh noes! Threats from a bald, fat man (as depicted in his own profile picture) living in the slums of NYC over the Internet! What will I ever do! :rollseyes: Please stop, you’re insulting yourself.
            5. “Weeks go by before i come to this site” Your profile page (which lists every single comment you’ve ever made, and when) would beg to differ. Besides this latest stream of ridiculous comments, you were last here 3 days ago, and again 3 days before that. Hardly the “weeks” you cite. Go get a calendar, you’re in desperate need of learning the passage of time.
            6. ” Can’t post comments at androidcentral talk to Jerry Hildenbrand about squiddy20″ And yet, you’re the idiot who was banned from AC’s forums, and it was in fact the same Jerry Hildenbrand who did so!

      • Jake H

        I disagree about the screens. I think the screen on the OneX looked significantly better than the galaxy s3, for example.

  • Pravas

    Something tells me this is gonna be awesome. ;)

  • surethom

    If the phone is as wide or wider than the s 3 then no thanks. Will wait for HTC one or Motorola X Phone.

    • bathna

      The owners of Samsung S 7 will end up carrying their phones in suitcases.

  • GE918

    I’m just happy that we have a variety of quality phones to choose from.

  • Nate B.

    I believe they com fused the 15 and the 14 with time zones. That what SamsungMobile said on twitter. For America it’ll be the 14 and Europe it’ll be the 15 based off time zones because obviously they’re ahead.

    Does anyone know the time HTC will be showing off their device. I know it’s tomorrow but what time?

    • Nate B.

      Okay, I found out. 10am eastern time

  • nauman

    i have a note2 and due to economic condition i will not be able to upgrade at least in coming 2 yrs (i live in india and am 15yrs old)
    but lets be logical why to upgrade if the s4 will only get a better camera and a better screen(screen not better by that much practically speaking you will not even be able to make out the difference in day to day life) and as far as processor goes its useless we are not even able to harness full power of s2 ???
    all the software tweaks and updates will also be recieved by my note2…….

    also i dont see any earth shattering reason to upgrade iphone4 to iphone5 and also siri is useless(why to do inaccurate and limited voice search when you cold just type it lol)

    • Nate B.

      Smh… 1080p screens are are a far superior than a 720p screen. I’ve seen and held a Note II and a friend of mine has the Droid DNA. There is a noticeable difference. And you will be able to make out the difference in day to day life. Especially when watching movies and viewing pictures. Browsing as well. The clarity is very noticeable.

      And you need those processors to handle the new features and higher res screens. Personally, not everyone will need this but it makes sense to have it.

      And as far as the iPhone 4 and 4S goes. Apples iPhones become crippled after a year and half to two years of iOS updates. The battery becomes corrupted and the phone does within hours or an hour and I am not exaggerating. The speed of the device going in and out of apps are noticeably faster with the iPhone 5. To enjoy my phone longer, have a better front and back camera quality, and a slightly but still small screen in my opinion I would have upgraded to an iPhone 5 from a 4 or 4S. By time iOS 7 comes out the iPhone 5 will be corrupted. It always happens and I’m not sure why they continue to update really old phones even if it is compatible. It kills it. It is a day and night thing most definitely.

      So enjoy your Note II. Nothing is wrong with that. You will probably get updated but maybe not until the Note 3 comes out later in the year (fall) because its software is a little different from the Galaxy S line. So don’t expect an update right away or even a month after the S4 is actually in stores to purchase. If anything, the S3 will se an update before the Note II sees one because its more compatible being a phone and not a phablet.

      You said lets be logical. Well, I was being logical. Samsung has raised the bar with each release and each year is an appropriate time to have a significant upgrade.

      • redraider133

        Well you also have to take into account the PPI more than necessarily the screen. The DNA with it’s 1080p on a smaller display has a higher ppi than the 5.5″ note 2. Plus LCD seems to look better in many cases than super amoled.

        • Richard Yarrell

          Regardless of the better screen on the Htc Dna the Galaxy Note 2 is the BEST ultimate all purpose productivity device ever made. The Htc Dna is nothing more than a regular smartphone with poor battery life for a 1080p device. Being first isn’t always good when the Galaxy Note 3 lands it will be far better than the 1080p Htc Dna you can bank on that. Note 3 will win 2013 hands down.

          • squiddy20

            By the time the Note 3 comes around, 1080p screens will more than likely be the norm for high-end, large-screen smartphones. There’s already at least 3 or 4 phones available in the US that have it, and that’s one less feature that’ll make the Note 3 stand out from the rest.

            A phone that comes out almost a whole year after a different phone, being better than the old phone? NO WAY! What other amazing insights will the GREAT and ALL KNOWING Richard Yarrell bring us!?

      • nauman

        first of all i have seen many comparison videos between note 2 and butterflys screen (in india dna is called as butterfly) and not a single reviewer said that the difference is noticeable in day to day life(except when reading text) 1080 is nothing but waste of battery life and processer power but still it is “logical” or useful update on phone with bigger screen like it is on note2 but as you can see i said the screen is going to be better ….but i didnt said the difference is that much that will compell you to upgrade…so even if i agree with your argument will you be spending 600$ on just a slightly better display and a slightly better processor

        as far as camera goes i have a digicam so no need for it(its going to take mobile about two years to fully replace home cameras)

        iphone is crapphone we all know most of people on androidandme are apple haters like me i hate all iphone even the latest (i am bieng stereotype but apple is a thief especially here in india iphone 5 costs a whopping 1000$ for 16gb unlocked and not at all pays you back in service)

  • CTown

    As powerful as the Exynos chips are, they have one of the worst community support. It went as far as TeamHacksung’s Daniel Hillenbrand even complained about how annoying it is to work on Exoynos devices. Thankfully, some of the US GSII phones and all of the US GSIII phones use the Snapdragon; so the US Samsung devices tend to have more community support than the international versions (and it doesn’t hurt that Cyanogen himself has a T-Mo GSIII).

    Still, I do want to see where the next version of the best selling Android series is heading.

  • trees247

    oh well Nexus 4 is has been so good to me…

    • Richard Yarrell

      Seems like all Nexus devices have crappy battery life. That useless Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and Sprint they are the worst ever. The Nexus 4 is definitely better on tmobile than that crappy Galaxy Nexus no doubt. But compared to other android devices the Nexus 4 pales in comparison to the Galaxy Note 2, Droid Razr Maxx, and Razr Maxx Hd. Any other device is useless.

      • squiddy20

        “But compared to other android devices the Nexus 4 pales in comparison to the Galaxy Note 2, Droid Razr Maxx, and Razr Maxx Hd.” Since you’re talking strictly about battery life throughout your stupid little rant, is it any wonder that all of the phones you have listed against the Nexus 4 have larger capacity batteries? OF COURSE they’ll be better than the Nexus 4′s considerably smaller battery! It doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out! If ever phone had a battery the size of the Note 2 or Razr Maxx, we’d ALL have battery life of 2 days easy! Seriously how stupid are you?

          Did you take what he said personally? Then why the personal attack? And if you did take what he said personally, then you need to put down the keyboard and mouse, step away from the computer, and go outside and see some reality. This comment only goes to show your own ignorance.

            “It’s better to have people think you are stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” Admirable job you just did there, BetterWithRoot. You went off on a little diatribe there complete with quotations. The thing is, AaM is stupid enough to allow Richard to post literally hundreds upon hundreds of hateful, racist, posts full of nothing _but_ filth, spite, and ignorant hatred, that it should not only not come as a surprise that people write posts like that, it should be expected. He completely ruined Phandroid before they banned him and went on to ruin themselves. Was Scott Bailey’s comment rough? Yes, it was. Am I offended? Nope, and I’m black. Instead of trying to “bury” an anti-Richard comment, I think your efforts would be better served getting Richard banned from AaM. There would be no more Richard, and the other people who follow him around trolling him. Stop the problem at it’s source.

            I understand your point. I don’t care if you were offended or not. I was. I detest the personal attacks on people. Yes, Richard can be a troll…and yet everyone here feeds into it. He didn’t say anything derogatory. Yes, his statement was pure opinion with no facts about it, but what else is new. When he attacks people personally, and the people retaliate I don’t say anything, because well, “you done bought this ’bout yourself”.

            I know I am not any better, I should take my own advice, downvote and move on. I can’t stand reading hate and ignorance though.

He has this silly past it’s prime crappy 3g Galaxy Nexus on Sprint on his mother’s family plan but he is on tmobile’s tmonews page posting comments cause Sprint his own carrier kicked him out of the Sprint forums. You won’t see squiddy20 on Twitter, instagram, Facebook or Google Plus cause if anyone ever found out who he really is they not only would laugh but probably want to kick his ass he’s such a coward. He won’t be purchasing any Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, Htc One, Galaxy S4, MotorolaX phone, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Galaxy Note 3, he has no job. Oh yeah he has this stupid 5year old laptop and thinks the world revolves around that sitting in his mother’s basement. Typical loser.

      • squiddy20Guest 2 years ago

        1. If someone gave me a new phone/tablet/whatever, I wouldn’t need to “afford” it since it’s being given to me for free. You must not have iota of brain power to come up with something so hilariously wrong and backwards. Try harder next time. If you can.
        2. “He has this silly past it’s prime crappy 3g Galaxy Nexus on Sprint” It’s called being in a 2 year contract and actually LIKING my phone, idiot. I don’t feel the need to have “the latest and greatest” because, unlike you, I have no self esteem issues. Only idiots who have low self esteem problems brag about going through 2 (carrier subsidized) phones a year as if he’s “made of money” or “rolling with the big dogs”.
        3. “Oh yeah he has this stupid 5year old laptop” You’ve been saying this exact same thing for the past 2 years, despite my saying that I have a mid-2009 Macbook Pro. Proof that you have no concept of time, or ability to do simple math.

  2. I am looking to pick up a note 2, but might have to wait for this now. Or maybe I’ll pick up both of them. :-)

  3. Terrible timing for HTC. No doubt Sammy’s marketing campaign will dwarf HTCs so they’ll have a tough time convincing consumers to buy the One if the S IV is already announced. My advice would be for HTC to work up a pre-order deal and include a D30 case or some other value add to encourage as many sales as possible during the tight window between the launch of the One and the launch of the S IV.

    • Samsung has very strategic and deliberate timing, and it serves them well.

    • HTC Build quality is better. Samsung just has the screen and processor.

      • and 95% of general Android users will go with the screen/processor.

        • petey pabloGuest 2 years ago

          Except that it will use the same qualcomm 600 soc. And the htc screen is better. Add that the s4 won’t have stereo speakers, or an ir. and welp. HTC wins this year.

      • Samsung has the screen, processor, storage options, battery solutions, and the software and features solutions. Bottom line here everyone knows who owns android and it isn’t Htc, Lg, Motorola, Nexus devices, or Sony. Samsung is android plain and simple.

        • squiddy20Guest 2 years ago

          “Bottom line here everyone knows who owns android and it isn’t Htc, Lg, Motorola, Nexus devices, or Sony.” Well you’re right about that. Because Google owns Android you idiot. Without Google providing Android to Samsung (as well as the other manufacturers you just listed), there’d be no “pimp slapping” Note 2, no upcoming Galaxy S4, and certainly no rumors of the Note 3. Take your stupid fanboy notions some place they’re wanted.

          • I would suggest you follow him with your incessant Richard bashing, but I noticed you’ve already done so (Android Central). Why you can’t just down vote him and move on is beyond me.

          • This guy is one of the biggest Internet trolls everand androidandme support his trolling ffor entertainment purposes. Squiddy20 can go fuck himself. As far as Google owning android that will never change which i love the most but don’t get it twisted asshole if it wasn’t for Samsung android and it’s operating system wouldn’t be where it is today. Last time i check penis face Samsung has the top market share and the funny part is you can add up htc, lg, motorola, and all crappy Nexus line devices and they still won’t match up to Samsung. Can’t help but laugh your the biggest joke in the android community and i am sure one of the biggest cowards as well. Hiding behind fake names cause in the real world your ass would be kicked. Your probably some old washed up middle 50′s person with a major bald spot and 350 pound living at home with your mother.

          • This dude is supported by androidandme they want him to troll on this site. If you notice he only post a comment whenever I do. Weeks go by before i come to this site and he never posts anything until I do. In the real world it means nothing he’s the one unable to post comments at Pocketnow, ask Mr. Michael Fisher how he feels about squiddy20. Can’t post comments at androidcentral talk to Jerry Hildenbrand about squiddy20, unable to post at Phandroid as well as tmonews one day androidandme will get wise. Squiddy20 can go play with himself that’s what he always does anyway.

          • squiddy20Guest 2 years ago

            1. You say I’m “unable to post comments at Pocketnow”, and yet, here’s this little tidbit proving you completely wrong: http://pocketnow.com/2013/02/25/phone-call-8-inch-tablet#comment-812217796 How ’bout them apples?
            2. “As far as Google owning android that will never change” This coming from the guy who states “Samsung is Android”. Whatever you say, hypocrite.
            3. “if it wasn’t for Samsung android and it’s operating system wouldn’t be where it is today” Partly true. If it weren’t for *all the companies using Android*, AND people like Matias Duarte or Andy Rubin, the OS certainly wouldn’t be where it is today. Get outta here you stupid fanboy.
            4. “Hiding behind fake names cause in the real world your ass would be kicked.” Oh noes! Threats from a bald, fat man (as depicted in his own profile picture) living in the slums of NYC over the Internet! What will I ever do! :rollseyes: Please stop, you’re insulting yourself.
            5. “Weeks go by before i come to this site” Your profile page (which lists every single comment you’ve ever made, and when) would beg to differ. Besides this latest stream of ridiculous comments, you were last here 3 days ago, and again 3 days before that. Hardly the “weeks” you cite. Go get a calendar, you’re in desperate need of learning the passage of time.
            6. ” Can’t post comments at androidcentral talk to Jerry Hildenbrand about squiddy20″ And yet, you’re the idiot who was banned from AC’s forums, and it was in fact the same Jerry Hildenbrand who did so! Here’s the proof: http://forums.androidcentral.com/google-nexus-4/223610-list-all-163-t-mobile-hspa-42-markets-3.html#post2310418 Where’s the proof of your ridiculous claims?

      • Jake HGuest 2 years ago

        I disagree about the screens. I think the screen on the OneX looked significantly better than the galaxy s3, for example.

  4. Something tells me this is gonna be awesome. ;)

  5. If the phone is as wide or wider than the s 3 then no thanks. Will wait for HTC one or Motorola X Phone.

    • bathnaGuest 2 years ago

      The owners of Samsung S 7 will end up carrying their phones in suitcases.

  6. I’m just happy that we have a variety of quality phones to choose from.

  7. I believe they com fused the 15 and the 14 with time zones. That what SamsungMobile said on twitter. For America it’ll be the 14 and Europe it’ll be the 15 based off time zones because obviously they’re ahead.

    Does anyone know the time HTC will be showing off their device. I know it’s tomorrow but what time?

  8. naumanGuest 2 years ago

    i have a note2 and due to economic condition i will not be able to upgrade at least in coming 2 yrs (i live in india and am 15yrs old)
    but lets be logical why to upgrade if the s4 will only get a better camera and a better screen(screen not better by that much practically speaking you will not even be able to make out the difference in day to day life) and as far as processor goes its useless we are not even able to harness full power of s2 ???
    all the software tweaks and updates will also be recieved by my note2…….

    also i dont see any earth shattering reason to upgrade iphone4 to iphone5 and also siri is useless(why to do inaccurate and limited voice search when you cold just type it lol)

    • Smh… 1080p screens are are a far superior than a 720p screen. I’ve seen and held a Note II and a friend of mine has the Droid DNA. There is a noticeable difference. And you will be able to make out the difference in day to day life. Especially when watching movies and viewing pictures. Browsing as well. The clarity is very noticeable.

      And you need those processors to handle the new features and higher res screens. Personally, not everyone will need this but it makes sense to have it.

      And as far as the iPhone 4 and 4S goes. Apples iPhones become crippled after a year and half to two years of iOS updates. The battery becomes corrupted and the phone does within hours or an hour and I am not exaggerating. The speed of the device going in and out of apps are noticeably faster with the iPhone 5. To enjoy my phone longer, have a better front and back camera quality, and a slightly but still small screen in my opinion I would have upgraded to an iPhone 5 from a 4 or 4S. By time iOS 7 comes out the iPhone 5 will be corrupted. It always happens and I’m not sure why they continue to update really old phones even if it is compatible. It kills it. It is a day and night thing most definitely.

      So enjoy your Note II. Nothing is wrong with that. You will probably get updated but maybe not until the Note 3 comes out later in the year (fall) because its software is a little different from the Galaxy S line. So don’t expect an update right away or even a month after the S4 is actually in stores to purchase. If anything, the S3 will se an update before the Note II sees one because its more compatible being a phone and not a phablet.

      You said lets be logical. Well, I was being logical. Samsung has raised the bar with each release and each year is an appropriate time to have a significant upgrade.

      • Well you also have to take into account the PPI more than necessarily the screen. The DNA with it’s 1080p on a smaller display has a higher ppi than the 5.5″ note 2. Plus LCD seems to look better in many cases than super amoled.

        • Regardless of the better screen on the Htc Dna the Galaxy Note 2 is the BEST ultimate all purpose productivity device ever made. The Htc Dna is nothing more than a regular smartphone with poor battery life for a 1080p device. Being first isn’t always good when the Galaxy Note 3 lands it will be far better than the 1080p Htc Dna you can bank on that. Note 3 will win 2013 hands down.

          • squiddy20Guest 2 years ago

            By the time the Note 3 comes around, 1080p screens will more than likely be the norm for high-end, large-screen smartphones. There’s already at least 3 or 4 phones available in the US that have it, and that’s one less feature that’ll make the Note 3 stand out from the rest.

            A phone that comes out almost a whole year after a different phone, being better than the old phone? NO WAY! What other amazing insights will the GREAT and ALL KNOWING Richard Yarrell bring us!?

      • naumanGuest 2 years ago

        first of all i have seen many comparison videos between note 2 and butterflys screen (in india dna is called as butterfly) and not a single reviewer said that the difference is noticeable in day to day life(except when reading text) 1080 is nothing but waste of battery life and processer power but still it is “logical” or useful update on phone with bigger screen like it is on note2 but as you can see i said the screen is going to be better ….but i didnt said the difference is that much that will compell you to upgrade…so even if i agree with your argument will you be spending 600$ on just a slightly better display and a slightly better processor

        as far as camera goes i have a digicam so no need for it(its going to take mobile about two years to fully replace home cameras)

        iphone is crapphone we all know most of people on androidandme are apple haters like me i hate all iphone even the latest (i am bieng stereotype but apple is a thief especially here in india iphone 5 costs a whopping 1000$ for 16gb unlocked and not at all pays you back in service)

  9. As powerful as the Exynos chips are, they have one of the worst community support. It went as far as TeamHacksung’s Daniel Hillenbrand even complained about how annoying it is to work on Exoynos devices. Thankfully, some of the US GSII phones and all of the US GSIII phones use the Snapdragon; so the US Samsung devices tend to have more community support than the international versions (and it doesn’t hurt that Cyanogen himself has a T-Mo GSIII).

    Still, I do want to see where the next version of the best selling Android series is heading.

  10. oh well Nexus 4 is has been so good to me…

    • Seems like all Nexus devices have crappy battery life. That useless Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and Sprint they are the worst ever. The Nexus 4 is definitely better on tmobile than that crappy Galaxy Nexus no doubt. But compared to other android devices the Nexus 4 pales in comparison to the Galaxy Note 2, Droid Razr Maxx, and Razr Maxx Hd. Any other device is useless.

      • squiddy20Guest 2 years ago

        “But compared to other android devices the Nexus 4 pales in comparison to the Galaxy Note 2, Droid Razr Maxx, and Razr Maxx Hd.” Since you’re talking strictly about battery life throughout your stupid little rant, is it any wonder that all of the phones you have listed against the Nexus 4 have larger capacity batteries? OF COURSE they’ll be better than the Nexus 4′s considerably smaller battery! It doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out! If ever phone had a battery the size of the Note 2 or Razr Maxx, we’d ALL have battery life of 2 days easy! Seriously how stupid are you?

        • @ScottBailey

          Seriously? I really don’t understand how this piece of hate has two upvotes. If you don’t like what Richard says, downvote and move on.

          Did you take what he said personally? Then why the personal attack? And if you did take what he said personally, then you need to put down the keyboard and mouse, step away from the computer, and go outside and see some reality. This comment only goes to show your own ignorance.

          “It’s better to have people think you are stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

          Come on community, let’s get this piece of filth buried.

            “It’s better to have people think you are stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” Admirable job you just did there, BetterWithRoot. You went off on a little diatribe there complete with quotations. The thing is, AaM is stupid enough to allow Richard to post literally hundreds upon hundreds of hateful, racist, posts full of nothing _but_ filth, spite, and ignorant hatred, that it should not only not come as a surprise that people write posts like that, it should be expected. He completely ruined Phandroid before they banned him and went on to ruin themselves. Was Scott Bailey’s comment rough? Yes, it was. Am I offended? Nope, and I’m black. Instead of trying to “bury” an anti-Richard comment, I think your efforts would be better served getting Richard banned from AaM. There would be no more Richard, and the other people who follow him around trolling him. Stop the problem at it’s source.

          • @Dawan

            I understand your point. I don’t care if you were offended or not. I was. I detest the personal attacks on people. Yes, Richard can be a troll…and yet everyone here feeds into it. He didn’t say anything derogatory. Yes, his statement was pure opinion with no facts about it, but what else is new. When he attacks people personally, and the people retaliate I don’t say anything, because well, “you done bought this ’bout yourself”.

            I know I am not any better, I should take my own advice, downvote and move on. I can’t stand reading hate and ignorance though.

  11. Doubt it’ll make me want to switch from my Nexus 4, now the “X” phone…

    • If I had the Nexus 4 with it poor battery life I’d dump that thing quickly. Anybody faking like the Nexus 4 is the best thing since sliced bread they are only fooling themselves. That prize goes to the Galaxy Note 2 the best android device period.

      • squiddy20Guest 2 years ago

        And not even 8 months ago you were saying how “pimp slapping” the S3 was, and the Galaxy Nexus before that, and how the Evo 3D was “the greatest thing since sliced bread” before that too. You’re a joke.

  14. Sammy should bring some few Ahs & Ohs to sell their S4.
    First required is a Nexus like price
    Second not required is a Nexus like availability.
    If they follow these, sure it will sell 100 million units.
